to have you here. that deadly terror attack killed four americans, u.s. ambassador chris stevens, two former navy seals and information management officer. peter doocy is live with more on the ongoing investigation. what is the latest. >> reporter: the latest is f.b.i. agents are still within not the city limits of benghazi. so the investigation into the attack has not fully started yet even though it's been 19 days since the attacks. republican senator bob corker who sits on the foreign relations committee is curious that thought it was safe enough for u.s. ambassador to have such lighted security three weeks ago but not safe enough for our best and brightest investigators to work under heavy guard. he wrote a letter to james clapper what has changed in libya that even f.b.i. agents, our most elite personnel cannot safely enter the city. what has led to a decline and unwillinglessness to provide answers and inaccuracy of information we have received has undermined the credibility of the administration. the chairman of the house committee peter king echoed that sentiment. that the tim
stevens. i'm i'll see you right here at 6:00 p.m. eastern on the fox news channel. >> paul: hillary clinton suggested that the consulate attack in benghazi involved the al-qaeda affiliate in north africa it was like will goly the work of the terrorist group. that admission led to many questions what took the administration so long with john mccain and lindsay graham issuing this statement. we recognize that al-qaeda involvement in the terrorist attack that killed four americans is an inconvenient truth for a president that claims to be destroying al-qaeda. but it's not too much to ask why the administration has taken so long to state what appeared obvious on what really happened on september 11th, 2012. we're a back with our panel. so given all that we've learned in the last couple of weeks. how big a security failure was that attack on the consulate? >> it was far bigger than this administration is willing to admit. we knew the security situation in benghazi was getting out of control. there were attack on the british consulate which was closed and there with a attacks on convoy an
passed the story is getting a bit more clear, thanks to a journal kept by ambassador chris stevens, who was killed. and james rosen know to tell us that piece of the puzzle and the reaction over its use. >> rick, at issue here is a hardbound book containing seven pages of handwritten note made by ambassador stevens. cnn says the correspondent found it on the ground three days after the attacks there. in his notes stevens reportedly expressed concerned of never ending security threats and worried he himself had been placed on an al-qaeda hit list. a spokesman told me that the fbi is investigating. a former u.s. ambassador told fox news's megyn kelly, the contents of the stevens journal may show a failing in the overall approach to the region. >> i'm sure that if he believed that security was a problem, he would have informed the state department's diplomatic security bureau and would have made a threat assessment and taken the necessary steps. the fact that he and three other americans by definition shows there's a massive failure of curt. at first cnn cited an individual with stevens' t
stevens to go to benghazi. it was a serious mistake for them to have a marine detachment at our facility in benghazi. i'll say this for stevens. he was a brave guy. he was involved in a transition and wanted to be involved in the transition for building a new libya. you have to take some kind of risks like that. >> there is no question about that. but people knew that libya was a terrorist center. almost all of our facilities is secured by marine guards. it would be strange marine guards guarding bahamas but not in tripoli. >> so why did the administration go to the story. it was all about the video reaction in the muslim world -- let's face it an obscure youtube video that nobody knew about until after the riot started? >> i think the key question. i don't know why they went to that narrative. what is interesting the secretary of state hillary clinton stepped off that narrative herself. when she was at the united nations, also said that they knew that al-qaeda had been active in the arabian peninsula. it seems to me that the secretary of state is distancing herself from the white house
new institutions. he began to move a forward after decades of dictatorship. chris stevens love his work. he took pride in the country he served anti sought dignity in the people that he met. two weeks ago, he traveled to establish a new cultural center and build a hospital. that is when the compound came under attack, along with three of his colleagues, chris was killed in the city that he helped to save. he was 52 years old. a study this story because chris stevens embody the best of america. like his fellow foreign service officers, he built divisions -- he built bridges across oceans. he is deeply invested in the vision that the united nations represents. he acted with humility, but he also stood up for a set of principles. a belief that individuals should be free to determine their own destiny and live with liberty, and dignity, justice, and opportunities. the attacks on the civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we receive from the libyan government and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tra
stevens and three other americans were killed in the september 11th attack in benghazi and molly henneberg is following the story live in washington what happens next. >> she has her supporters including the president saying she's done extraordinary work at the united nations and providing the best knowledge that the administration had at the time. and john kerry, democratic chairman of the foreign relations committee says she's a quote enormously capable person, but republican congressman peter king is it not convinced. he wants to know why five days after the attack that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others, ambassador rice stated publicly on several talk shows it was a spontaneous attack that grew out of an anti-muslim video when there was evidence it was a coordinated terror attack. >> ambassador rice should resign and we should investigate how high up this went and if the administration would voluntarily come forward and why they gave out this false information when they had to know there was so much else out there and yet, they wanted to rule out terrorism from the start.
stevens, who was killed in libya. on iran, the president said the u.s. would do what they must to prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. his remarks were about 30 minutes. [applause] >> on behalf of the general assembly, i would be honored to welcome to the united nations, his excellency, barack obama, president of united states of america and invite him to address the assembly. >> mr. president, mr. secretary-general, fellow delegates, ladies and gentlemen, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town in california. the son of a lawyer and a musician.
? steven yates is former deputy assistant for national security affairs. great to see you. what are the chances that iran would actually capitulate to western demands by suspending the production of 20% uranium if you spin it a bit more could be used to make a nuclear bomb? >> gregg, i'm afraid what it sounds like the pieces of deal that were reported by the "new york times," basically the leftovers have more than ten years of negotiations with europe and united states and the u.n. security council. i don't feel there is lot new there. it's been offered and taken back and there is verification problems if you accept the deal. for me i don't see much of a change. if they are facing a great deal of pressure, there is a strategic choice do you make a deal with crumbling regime or do you have to have a strategy to see beyond the regime. >> gregg: iranians have 18, 20 sites, those are ones we know about and bunch under ground. a lot of this could still be hidden from nuclear inspectors. they could continue their uranium enrichment production capacity what would be an elaborate shell
with the new revelations on the deadly attack in libya. >> the attack that killed chris stevens and three other americans. >> the u.s. intelligence community now says it was a deliberate terrorist assault. cnn intelligence correspondent suzanne kelly has more. >> this is really the fullest account aing yet on behalf of the community which rarely venchers to the public domain to issue what they knew. the intelligence community says this was a deliberate and terrorized result sympathetic to al qaeda. that comes from se s from shawn. the reason we're seeing something like this two plus weeks after the attack, there is growing frustration within the inteigence community itself how information is being used. that initial assessment being this was a protest, a spontaneous attack that grew out of a protest in response to the anti-muslim films. it appears that as more information came in, that picture changed. the story from administration officials didn't change so dramatically and i think that really shows us that there are still unanswered questions. we don't have a direct timeline on when administr
that killed ambassador chris stevens and three others that it was a coordinated terror attack, likely tied to al-qaeda. >>> a statement yesterday by a spokesman for the director of the national intelligence said, the intelligence committee believes at first that this was a spontaneous mob action, and that it was communicated to the obama administration, then later revised to say that it was a, quote, deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried out by extremists. it's unclear, though, when that assessment was revised, because ambassador rice was still describing it as spontaneous five days after the attack. >> molly, thank you. well, governor romney is spending his weekend off the campaign trail and prepping for his first big debate against president obama. the romney campaign says it is expecting some tough barbs from a candidate well versed in presidential debates, but the governor is no spraininger to debates as well, setting expectations high for the first face-off. former new hampshire governor john sununu is joining us now to tell us what governor romney needs to do to make a di

of the benghazi consulate and annex where u.s. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were murdered, a turkish broadcaster announced the arrest of two tunisians and called them suspect in the case. u.s. officials swiftly contacted them and they had no report on the action, they had an explanation why the fbi took so long to visit the so-called crime scene. >> we were working with the government of libya to obtain permission for the fbi team and the dod support team to travel there. we did seek over flight for them permission as well as for landing of aircraft and we worked to get them the appropriate visas, so we've been working through all of these perm metations. >> that the perpetrators may have different nationalities or fled to far-flung countries exposes the myriad difficulties the fbi faces in hunting down the killers. >> and the intelligence operation and the way in which globalization helps because we can check passports more quickly, we can figure out which may be fraudulent and which may be associated with suspect terrorists. >> the state department panel led by former u.
a lot of hot button issues. >> yeah. the most recently retired justices were john paul stevens went out at 90. david souter 69, sandra day o'connor 75. is there a tradition of when justices usually retire, be it age, or time served? >> well, they're like most human beings. a lot of factors weigh in. there is -- there was a tradition where justices would tend to retire during the term of a president that was at the same party that appointed them. but we know neither justices souter nor stevens did that. they were both republican employees and went out during president obama's term. life circumstances can drive retirement decisions. so it's really not scientifically predictable or politically predictable. >> do you see any most likely candidates if another seat opens up under president obama? >> you know, i think if president obama, first of all, justice ruth bader ginsburg i think the pressure to replace her with another woman appointee would be enormous. we've made progress in getting a third of the court female and i don't think president obama or any president would want to go backwar
that killed our ambassador, chris stevens and others on the ground. on september 16th, the u.n. ambassador for this administration came on this program and this is how she described whether or not this was a deliberate act, a terrorist attack. this is what sizen wright said at that time. >> let me tell you best information we have at present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation which is ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. but putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo. which were prompted of course by the video. >> there's a caveat there, she said the fbi was still investigating. but the thought was it was a spontaneous reaction. a couple of days before that the libyan president said al qaeda was behind the attack. and days later, the president's spokesman, jay carney says th
attack on ambassador christopher stevens. last night stewart went to town. >> so the administration's story was anti-muslim video on youtube touched off a massive protest on vend to spread quickly to 27 other places. seems implausible, but two days later, they had an explanation for that, two. >> our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was, in fact, initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copy cat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo which were prompted, of course, by the video. >> copy cats. [ laughter ] libya wasn't the ring. it was the ring 2. [ laughter ] five days after the attack, the white house was still sticking to the video story. on the eighth day, the director of national counter terrorism center went in front of congress with a slightly different assessment. >> i would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy. >> of course, he's going to say it was a terrorist attack. he runs the counterterrorism center. a cynic would argue the president has been unwi

communications between ambassador stevens and the state department. >> at a time most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country instead we've had this bizarre response which only leads me to believe, number one, there was gross negligence or incompetence involved or this administration doesn't want all of us to realize that libya may now be a failed state if the fbi agents who are well-trained can't even make it into benghazi. >> with growing calls for ambassador susan rice resign over her comments that benghazi was a demonstration spun out of control had strong defense this weekend by senior obama cam main advisor. >> i was shocked to see representative king attack ambassador rice because she was acting on the intelligence given her to the intelligence community. to say she should resign, she is one of the most remarkable splendid public servants that is thoroughly irresponsible. >> reporter: two final observations about axelrod's comments. number one, susan rice went way beyond the assessment here given by the director of national
is a millennial, steven crowder, what is millennial first of all. >> i was using my phone and people my age, probably about early mid 20's, and the general age range, and first range, late 80's, through early 2000's, depends who you ask. >> clayton: we have a new gallup poll out, this is interesting on millenials and how they'll fall in line perhaps for prol, president obama. and for president obama 58% and you framed it this way, that they are selfish and that's why they're going to vote for president obama. why is that? >> sure, most people are selfish, not singling out millennials. we tend to vote in our self-interest and tend to vote the occupy movement for more free crap not based on the constitutional parameters of government, but found principles, but what the government can give them and because they're voting that way, they're doing it wrong. >> clayton: so health care, number one, a lot of people saying in that age range of 26 years old now on their parents' health care plan because of obama care, you think that could be a big factor? >> and the way to buy someone's vote in the s
christopher stevens was murdered. do you condemn the attacking which caused his murder? >> translator: fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative offends the religious thoughts and feelings of any people we condemn. likewi likewise, we condemn any type of extremism. of course, what took place was ugly, offending the holy prophet is quite ugly. this has very little or nothing to do with freedom and freedom of speech. this is the weakness and the abuse of freedom. and in many places it is a crime. it shouldn't take place, and i do hope that they will come in which politicians will not seek to offend those whom otherses hold holy or stainwith sanctiti. but we also believe that this must also be resolved in a humane atmosphere, in a participate o'environmeaer envi we do not like anybody losing their lives or being killed in wri. >> there are protesters all over the middle east now threatening the staff of american embassies, tlentding to kill them, behead them. do you think they should stop? >> translator: you see, i cannot determine what people or nations should do, but
that ambassador stevens and the others were killed because of the security at the compound? >> i think you have to say there is a direct link. but when you are cutting the security, why whereelse aren't we able to fund the measures? but, no. ic another legitimate issue is, how much has al qaeda become innerwoven within the hour of spring? this is a legitimate issue for both candidates. have that changed and attacking us here on the homeland toet if our consulates overseas? if so, how much has congress and the united states administration come together to fund adequately all of our worries and state departments throughout the global environment of the world? >> brad, if there was the shift by al qaeda, should the administration have come out with what they said that it was a dopey movie? >> eric tfit their narrative at the time. they wanted the world to believe and americans to believe that the youtube video was the causation for the attack in libya. we know that that is false. what is worse, and the admiral is right, al qaeda is interwoven throughout the arab spring in numerous countries. but w
from tu nrk isa are being weed if turkey tonight in connection with the murders of chris stevens and three other americans. jill daugherty has been digging into the story and is with us tonight. >> well, on this particular incident, we don't know a whole lot of detail, but we know those two men, they are being questioned in turkey. and the understanding is that they were somehow allegedly tied to the attack in libya. which killed the ambassador. now, they were on the watch list that the u.s. compiled. that was given to the turks and the turks picked them up, apparently came into the country this week and the fbi is hoping they will have some type of access to them. >> questioned them already, but would like to have a chance to. >> right. >> there was also another development today in this investigation. this e-mail between the state department and the team benghazi surfaced. what do we know about that? >> well, this is part of, you know there are several investigations ongoing into the death of the ambassador and the three other americans. and how it happened. the charge is that
